Bear's General Manager Ryan Pace said that "it's an open competition" regarding the Bears' starting quarterback position. (StaceyDales on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

After being drafted second overall in 2017, Trubisky took the starting job from Mike Glennon prior to Week 5 and has never had that role threatened. This offseason, however, has been a very different story as the Bears aggressively shopped the free agent market, eventually settling for multi-year deal with Nick Foles. This is Trubisky's last guaranteed season on his rookie deal before the Bears are forced to make a decision regarding his fifth-year option estimated to be around $24M. Pace's comments make it appear as though Trubisky and the newly acquired Foles will battle it out for the starting job in Chicago. Over the last few season, the Bears' staff has consistently lauded Trubisky's performance in camp, although it hasn't translated to much in-game success. While Foles looked primed to take the reins immediately as the starter, this situation will require some attention over the coming months.
